Jeffrey H. Duncan

Jeffrey H. Duncan, 66, of Muncy, passed away on Friday, February 16, 2018, at UPMC Susquehanna, Williamsport.

He was born on March 18, 1951, in Sunbury, a son of the late Martha (Newbury) Duncan and Wilfred Duncan, who survives. On April 27, 1972, at Rock Run State Park, Ralston, he married his high school sweetheart, the former Ann Phillips, who survives, and with whom he shared his life for 50 years.

Jeff was a 1969 graduate of Shikellamy High School and a 1973 graduate of Lycoming College, Williamsport.

He worked for Carlucci Aluminum for many years, but it was in 1988 that he discovered his true calling of archaeology, which he pursued over the next 20 years.

Jeff was a brilliant man with a passion for learning, whose knowledge spanned a vast range of areas and topics. He spent his whole life building up those around him, giving his time, the work of his hands, and his expertise with those who asked for his help. He touched a great many lives, giving of himself and being loved in return by many people. He never met a stranger, and made friends wherever he went.

Surviving in addition to his wife are two sisters, Lisa Davis, of Lakeland, Fla., and Stephany Gormley and her husband, Gene, of Lewisburg.

A celebration of life will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 24, at Grenoble’s, 121 S. Main St., Muncy, followed by a gathering and time of remembrance at Orlando’s Restaurant, 8 S. Main St., Muncy.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions in Jeff’s name be made to the Society for PA Archaeology at
